VIDEO: Why Moms Need Guns

Posted on | February 6, 2013 | 8 Comments

Gayle Trotter of the Independent Women’s Forum explains to Sean Hannity why Second Amendment rights are so important for women:

Becca Lower has the transcript of the interview:

I think this view is not something that the media is covering. I think it’s something that people haven’t really considered, and I really wanted to speak to women about this very important Constitutional right. And explain to them the cases. I had an Appendix which had twenty-one examples of women defending themselves against violent attack with firearms. . . .
I have an example of a woman who was attacked by five armed intruders. I had an example where a woman defended her child from being kidnapped. I had multiple examples of women with babies, with young children, trying to defend themselves. And so no one who criticized me bothered to read the written testimony that I submitted to the Senate.

Read the rest of the transcript. Gayle Trotter is the co-founder of a Washington law firm, a woman of genuine accomplishment, and you have to ask yourself: Why do to the media act as if Sandra Fluke speaks for all women, while ignoring an excellent role model like Gayle Trotter?

    Conservatives should frame this as a “pro-choice” issue. “Why do the democrats want to take away my right to choose how I protect my own body?” #MyBodyMyChoice

    Take the liberal narratives and turn them against the dems.

    Sandra Fluke is still getting invites to talk on CNN and MSNBC. (I was stuck in a place where I couldn’t turn off the TV, so I know.) Therefore she’s clearly qualified to talk for all women. She missed out on the trifecta by being white, so she gets extra credit for being a leftie.

    Liberal math is easy.

    (And thanks for bringing Gayle Trotter to our attention, Stacy.)

    And do it like Ted Nugent did with Piers Morgan.

    Which is why the “war on women” narrative needs to be changed into a “war by women”… conservative women.

    The media considers Fluke a hero and prototypical modern woman because she is a lying leftist slut who demands taxpayers cover her promiscuity.

    In other words, she is just like the media.

    Fluke is a hero because she’s a real life Julia.

    Why do to the media act as if Sandra Fluke speaks for all women, while ignoring an excellent role model like Gayle Trotter?

    That’s easy, because Sandra needs Uncle Sugar to nurture and support her, and Gayle can take care of herself…
